DANCE MANITOBA ENDOWMENT FUND
Our endowment enables us to plan for the future, meet unanticipated costs, and overcome challenging times when private and public support may fluctuate. We welcome gifts of all sizes to our fund; together these contributions help ensure our long-term viability. The Winnipeg Foundation oversees the investment of, and distribution from, our fund, and gives us access to professional management and the benefits of investing a larger total asset base. The Foundations also provides a matching support program, based on a formula, to help us grow our fund.
Dance Manitoba is committed to its current programming and events, and with support from our friends, donations made to the endowment fund ensures that Dance Manitoba will be able to develop future programming. Donations can be made to the Dance Manitoba Endowment Fund.
Each year Dance Manitoba stages a scholarship fundraising campaign for the annual Manitoba Provincial Dance Festival. Selected by the adjudicator of each discipline, outstanding performers are awarded scholarships from the sum of the donations to the annual scholarship program. All scholarships issued must be applied to the direct costs of the recipients’ continued dance education or supplies. Donations to the Scholarship Campaign can be made directly to Dance Manitoba. Dance Manitoba issues a charitable tax receipt for donations made to the Scholarship Fund. Donations can be made to the Dance Manitoba Scholarship Fund here.
